Pickle was adopted on February 13, 2017
Hi! My name is Pickle (#2777)! I’m not sure where my name came from but I answer to it so I guess I’ll keep it. I think I am two years old, but I do have some “ blond” hairs on my chin that my foster thinks are grey, so maybe I’m a little bit older.
I love balls! I love ALL balls! I love the balls on TV! I love the balls you didn’t know were under the stove or hidden in the corner!! I even love the balls that aren’t really balls (onions), though I hear some of the balls that aren’t really balls are bad for dogs. Boo! Oh well…my point is that I love balls!
I would love a home where I am understood. In addition to balls, I also love humans! I want to climb all over them so much that I forget to stop! My foster tells me that it is nice if I lay next to her or on her feet when she is at the computer rather than bumping her arm or climbing in her lap. I am starting to understand that, especially since I want to be right with her all the time. It seems like understanding her cues helps me get what I want, but I still need practice before I’m completely in tune to what humans expect.
I would prefer a home without small kids because I often run without looking and might knock them down. I love my foster brothers, both big and small. I enjoy walking and I like just being with my family. I will go in my crate if needed but I prefer to be free to share my love. I don’t destroy much. (Truth be told, there was a little digging incident in my foster home but that happens to everyone. Right?) I like to see what is on the counter and will bring the good stuff to my family but I don’t destroy it.
I really just need a patient family who sees that I love them so VERY, VERY much that I can’t control my enthusiasm. (You may have noticed my generous use of exclamation points? That’s to show how enthusiastic I am!)
What do you think? Could I be the Pickle for you? If you already have dogs named Mustard and Ketchup, it’s a no brainer. I’m just sayin’. Even if you don’t have Mustard and Ketchup, I hope you’ll consider making me a member of your family.
